Another decent run this morning. Getting up at 5:00 isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Note to self-- It's time for a new alarm clock. Every time you even touch the $10 cheapo we bought years ago,m the time moves ahead a minute or two. Next thing you know, I'm going to be setting the alarm for 5 and waking up at 4:30.

I figured out my 3 mile run for Saturday morning. From the corner of our neighborhood to the train station and back. Nothing scenic about the run, but it will get me my mileage. The knee feels really good today. I'm very surprised. Still, I'm going to remain careful about it and not overdo the running.

My Popdose entry about Great Strides and "Here Comes the Sun" went up this morning. It turned out nicely and I am a little impressed with myself for attaching so many links and media to the posting. Not that I'm going to become some kind of web guru, but it's nice to have a little bit of knowledge on how these things work. I am really thrilled about the exposure Popdose is giving the Basement Songs series. The best part is having the songs there for readers to listen to as they read along. Anyway, we received a couple of donations from readers of Popdose. Again, it always amazes me how strangers will jump in to help one another. Thank you everyone.

Not much else to tell. My head's still a little cloudy from waking up so early.

Take something called proteolytic enzymes (a health food store should have it) on an empty stomach 2-3x a day. They're anti-inflammatory. You can also make a tea by cutting up ginger into a pot of water, bring it to a boil, steep about 6 bags of tea (per gallon of water) for 20 minutes, put the concoction in the fridge overnight, strain out the ginger, drink a quart of the tea a day. Filled with anti-oxidants and the ginger is also anti-inflammatory. Oh, and fish oil. 3 caps a day with food. Not only anti-inflammatory but gives your coat the high-pro glow.
